    Hello !
    Well after reading articles tutorials and more about terminal I wanted to try it myself but once I went on it the window wasn't the same as it should have been....
    So yeah can anyone please tell me what I did wrong or what I should do ?
    I put the link of the window I get, normally it should say
    welcome to Darwin ! then localhost etc.
    Btw where it's erased is because it was showing my full name.
    Thank you for the help !!

    What you got seems normal to me. You've gotten a bash shell and a command prompt. Perhaps you were reading old tutorials?

    As a harmless test to build your confidence, you could try a simple command. Type

    cal 2010

    and press return. You should get a calendar for the current year!

    Maybe just start by looking at "Terminal Help" (cleverly located in the Terminal application's Help menu). That and the links it supplies should get you started. Basically you need to learn about the unix operating system that underlies OS X, which is what the Terminal command line lets you access.

    Good luck.
